Stryders News 11/18 - Turkey Raffle Run, Team for Dailey Turkey Trot and more

18 Nov 2021 7:53 PM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

Don’t forget, Saturday is the annual Stryders Turkey Raffle Run.

When: 8:30 a.m. Saturday

Where: Warming Hut, Saratoga Spa State Park

What: We’ll start a 1-hour run at 8:30 a.m. on a pre-set course (same as last year, in and around grass, woods, trails and bike paths near the Warming Hut). After each lap runners/walkers will receive a raffle ticket. Shortly after the 1-hour run/walk we’ll raffle off turkeys to the lucky ticket holders.

SPECIAL NOTES: We will conduct everything OUTSIDE. The Warming Hut has been open as of late so you should be able to get in for restroom facilities and/or a warm fire. We will also NOT conduct the raffle of baked goods, but you’re free to bring any along to share if you wish.

VOLUNTEERS: Lee Briggs will head up the team handing out the raffle tickets and she could use some help. Send Lee an email to if you can help out.

Stryders team at Christopher Dailey Turkey Trot

Speaking of turkey, before you consume copious amounts of the great bird head out to the Christopher Dailey Turkey Trot in Saratoga Springs. If you run with us Wednesday nights you know most of the route, up North Broadway to Skidmore, around and back down the hill.

Lee Briggs set up a Stryders team. When you sign up the team password is stryders20201.

Runners already signed up can also contact Lee at to be added to the team.

Finally, the Turkey Trot is the final race in the 2021 Stryders Grand Prix. We’re still tabulating results, so make sure to submit any old or new times to John Couch through the email



• On Monday’s note we had an incorrect date for the Schuylerville Drama Club’s Ugly Sweater 5K Run/Walk. The run is at 1 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 5 at the Warming Hut.

• Don’t forget to RSVP for the Stryders Holiday Party.
